In a scathing attack against the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre, Himachal Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister and Congress leader Mukesh Agnihotri said that during its regime in the last ten years, the poor have become poorer and the job opportunities have shrunk in the country.

“During the regime of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the poor have become poorer. The country’s economy suffered with the weakening of the Indian rupee. Those who promised to provide employment to 2 crore youth are silent on the unemployment of the youth today,” Agnihotri said while addressing an election campaign rally here in support of Congress candidate Rahul Gandhi.

Mukesh said that the aim of Congress is to advance development, provide employment, bring prosperity, and end “dictatorship” in the country.

“Rahul Gandhi is fighting against dictatorship and is carrying forward his struggle in the interest of the country without any post. Rahul has travelled 4,000 kilometers on foot to express his gratitude to India,” he said.

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who enriched a few capitalists, did not take any care of the poor,” he added.

He said that the BJP has lost its senses due to Rahul Gandhi’s campaign.

“From the way BJP has done the campaign based on religion, it is clear that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has become fearful of losing power,” he said.

He alleged that the BJP wants to end the reservation for the socially and economically backward communities.

“Reservation in the country is the contribution of Congress, keeping in mind the interest of every class. The way reservation is being discussed today regarding a particular religion, it is clear that there is turmoil in the BJP. BJP’s intention has been revealed many times that it wants to end reservation,” Agnihotri said.

The Congress, on May 3, announced Rahul Gandhi as a candidate from Raebareli and loyalist KL Sharma from Amethi.

Rahul Gandhi is a sitting MP in Kerala’s Wayanad, where he is seeking a fresh term alongside Rae Bareli. Rahul represented Amethi from 2004 until 2019.

He will face Congress defector and three-time MLC Dinesh Pratap Singh of BJP in Raebareli.

Raebareli constituency goes to the polls on May 20 in the fifth phase. In the 2019 Lok Sabha Elections, Congress leader Sonia Gandhi won the constituency, bagging 5,34,918 votes. Her closest rival, Dinesh Pratap Singh, put up a formidable challenge, gathering 3,67,740 votes.(ANI)
